The sculptural work of Evan Holloway is based on his belief in the simple and fundamental transactions between people and objects. This also means that his sculptures are not just abstractions or decorations, but are to be understood as a commentary on contemporary society and its values. Evan Holloway uses the vocabulary of modern sculpture for rigorous formal experimentation and he constantly plays on allusions and materials. His questioning of perception and representation is also explored through his love of craftsmanship, and through his comments on ‘style’ or ‘taste’. His work is characterised by the playful use of colour and the introduction of human figures, mostly in the form of heads, masks or little creatures, and the mathematical, alphabetical and geometric systems that he uses to disrupt and re-order the associations typically attached to them.

 

Recent solo exhibitions include the Pomona College Museum of Art, CA (2008) and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (2004). His work has been included in numerous international group exhibitions including All of This and Nothing at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2011) and the 2008 California Biennial. Important group exhibitions include The Uncertainty of Objects and Ideas: Recent Sculpture at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington DC (2006) and The Americans, The Barbican, London, UK (2001). Ridinghouse Editions recently published a survey of Evan Holloway’s work

 

Evan Holloway was born in La Mirada, California, in 1967. He lives and works in Los Angeles.
